Jin Hi Kim 'Sargeng'



Uniquely satisfying improvisation from Jin Hi Kim, this record featuring heavyweights Henry Kaiser and Elliot Sharp on several tracks.

Lithium Dreams 'Omega Prism'


New age drone chanelling from this gem of 2008. More heady than relaxing at points, with a strange dissonance throughout the first half. Well worth travelling back for.

Pocahaunted 'Beast That You Are'

Pocahaunted slabs from way back, when they droned and groaned across many reels of tape. This one was for Night People in 2008.

Super Minerals 'Clusters'



Still our favourite Super Minerals release, and the only to feature a piano.
A bit like Lubomyr Melnik really letting loose, and listening back to his session back through a cassette deck.
Our latest batch is still available via bandcamp and email order.

Available Now! CLR07 & CLR08 - Straytone & AxJxB

We're happy to announce our next two releases, available now on C40 Cassette or Digital Download.

Straytone 'Brute-Force Melody Cracking'


Tokyo-dwelling modular artist brings auto-generated melodies that weave and evolve - each new line effacing the last as it moves onwards with graceful speed. Complimented by a cooler, cinematic drone that makes this a dynamic yet complete debut release. 
Edition of 20

AJB 'Relics of YX'

Multicoloured modular groans, rising like a beast from beneath the city, scattering harmonies across beds of grumbling noise. Harshness never prevails, but the tonal flourishes disturb as much as they embrace you. This album was recorded across a 3 month journey in different locations in Japan. 
Edition of 20

Purchase them now via bandcamp, available cheaper when bought together.
Email us for a direct order to help save on bandcamp fees.

Obscure Tape Music of Japan Vol. 3 - Music Drama Akai Mayu

Moroi Makoto and Koubou Abe provide the third installation of musique concrete from Japan. Choir samples and the sound of woodblocks make it particularly cinematic.
